"Malva" created by Filatura Di Crosa is a contemporary, narrow, 1/8-inch ribbon that gets its softness from a base of lightweight netting with individual, variegated color strands threaded throughout. Add to that a quick-to-knit, bulky weight on large needles and color combos for spring/summer garments such as shells, summer wraps, tops and beach cover-ups. It is 85% cotton & 15% rayon.

The manufacturer's gauge--13 st./4"--seems to be off. I tried knitting with it at that gauge, and the fabric was extremely loose. It can be knit much, much tighter. But this is a pretty yarn, great for making airy summer tops.
